Can't rember the password of "Keyboard Interactive"?

 
hey, I have a question:

One of our linux servers uses the authentication method of "SSH2 & OpenSSH 5.1", and I don't have a public key. Each time I connnect this server, I must choose "Keyboard Interactive" and retype the password.
Can Xshell rember this password to avoid typing it again and again?
I saw "SecureCRT 6.7" can do it, but I'd like using Xshell more.

please check the snapshot in attachment for details.
thanks!

Program Ver. : Xshell 4

We are aware of this issue and considering adding this feature in the future.
Remembering the password defeats the security purpose of "Keyboard Interactive" for it should be entered when connecting each time.
In this case, we recommend enabling password authentication on SSH server.
